NBC loves when a plan comes together so they’ve decided to take a page out of The A-Team/ Expendables book of stunt casting for this season of “Chuck.” According to EW, our favorite geeky spy will encounter a few soldiers-of-fortune who are nothing more than cheap knock offs of Hannibal, B.A. Baracus, and Murdock. Check out the details below…
Eric Roberts, Avatar and “Bones” star Joel David Moore, and WWE wrestling champ Dave Batista have signed on to guest-star as Casey’s former “buddies” from the Clinton era. “the trio—who turn up in this season’s fourth episode, “Chuck Versus the Coup d’Etat”—have gone rogue and are back to seek revenge on their ex-comrade.”
I’m a big fan of Eric Roberts, and I thought his bad guy performance in The Expendables was campy goodness. It will be fun to watch him do his best George Peppard-Hannibal impersonation. Let’s see how well it stacks up against Liam Neeson’s take from the feature film. I wonder how Chuck’s going to get himself out of this one?
The season premiere of “Chuck” is scheduled to air on September 20th.
